Ritual Pinot Noir 2017


No Shipping. Available For Pick Up At 86 Forks After Online Purchase. (11B Palafox Place, Pensacola, FL)

Obviously, the 2017 Ritual Pinot Noir feels ripe, the product of a warm and dry year. It is quite expressive and open, quite varietal and clean, with red fruit and floral aromas and a serious mouthfeel with very fine and chalky tannins. The oak is very integrated, and the wine feels harmonious and has good freshness. 50,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in March 2018. -Luis Gutiérrez, Feb 2020

From Casablanca with 11 months in the barrel, this 2017 Pinot offers delicate strawberry and herbal aromas and rose petal notes. Dry on the palate, it presents just the right freshness and light tannins, making this a typically refreshing example. -Joaquín Hidalgo, Mar 2020

Excellent Value from this Ganzalez-Byass-owned winery, Ritual’s naturally fermented Pinot Noir uses some whole bunch fermentation and 20% new wood to good effect. Sappy, spicy and floral with juicy strawberry fruit and subtle oak.
